  • The Army-Navy Screen Magazine 06 1943: the entire newsreel

The Army-Navy Screen Magazine was produced by the U.S. Army Signal Corps Pictorial Service, under the supervision of Col. Frank Capra, who came up with the idea. It was released twice a month and shown to military troops as a 20-minute newsreel.

"By the end of the war, the Army-Navy Screen Magazine reached an enormous weekly audience of 4.2 million. It had become for American soldiers all over the world a communal experience that greatly influenced their perception of the war."

It featured short documentary films, news from back home, and short training films like Dr. Seuss' Private Snafu cartoons.   I've uploaded the entire Screen Magazine and also each segment as a separate file (some editions are comprised of 1 long film, though).

Description at the National Archives: "Reel 1, Part 1, an M-10 tank destroyer is tested over rough terrain; its guns are fired. Part 2, a pilot describes the bombing of Tokyo. B-25s leave the carrier Hornet. Shows Gen. Doolittle. Gen. Arnold denounces the execution by the Japanese of U.S. pilots. Part 3, Detroit factory workers visit Camp Atterbury, Ind.; (Reel 2) soldiers from the camp visit Detroit war plants. Part 4, a Russ. woman merchant seaman describes her duties. Part 5: on the Buna campaign in New Guinea. Troops assemble at Port Moresby; a corduroy road is constructed; supplies are dropped from the air. Shows Australian troops, Japanese POW's, and Gen. MacArthur."

As always, any error or typo is mine and if you enjoy my uploads or if you intend to make $ or otherwise profit from these files, please consider making a donation to a veteran's charity of your choice and/or itself. Thanks. :)
